NPR presents... A FISHTALE: THE LIES THAT BIND US
Thursday, June 14, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
Join three NPR science correspondents as they dissect a lie.
Jon Hamilton, Alix Spiegel and Shankar Vedantam explore the science behind deception and self-deception, in 90-minutes of live storytelling, audience discussion and original multimedia.
Using the true story of two little boys from Milwaukee who lied to their parents about catching a fish, the reporters explain what the latest research in neuroscience, sociology and psychology tell us about our lies:
Are we wired to be honest or wired to deceive?
Is the fib you told your 3rd grade teacher about your losing your homework anything like the lies a politician tells to get elected?
How often are we complicit in helping people deceive us?
It's free. It's fun. It's NPR Science on stage.
